IN FLIGHT (Poem 10)

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Was I summoned to do jobs-so-high?
As a sentinel from the Sky?
A mobile warrior
Who shames and fears not
In bringing forth victories
For mankind’s
In the glorious halls
Of Kosmos?

If so, then

You are my visible shield!

A shield that never dies
Is worthy of bigness
As colossal
As the universe’s entirety.

A-shielded let me then make
Upon the planet’s vast horizons
To pursue
What my soul
Has been in quest for.

[Writ. 23 Aug. 1987, Univ. of the Philippines, Quezon City, M.Manila.]
